Learn & Lead is Back!

After a COVID-induced break, our annual fundraising training for schools, churches, and other Christ-based organizations will be on Thursday & Friday, April 28 & 29 in Fort Wayne at the Busse Alumni Center of Purdue-Fort Wayne on Coliseum Boulevard.

Join us for our annual Noon-2-Noon Faith-Based Fundraising Retreat As we welcome back by popular demand Dr. Bill Stanczykiewicz as our retreat speaker. Bill is the Director of the Fund Raising School at the IU Lilly Family School of Philanthropy, the nation’s leader in fundraising education and research.

We are also returning to our “Noon-2-Noon” Retreat format, with one speaker for the entire event that starts at noon on Thursday and finishes after lunch on Friday. Attendees will not only have access to world-class training, but also have one-on-one mentoring opportunities with a national expert. Bill will also infuse faith-based best practices into all sessions.
